Is it still under warranty?

Try connecting it to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting it to a USB port on a different computer.

If it still is not detected, then either exercise the warranty,
or disassemble the case, to find two major parts:
* a disk-drive
* a USB-to-disk-drive adapter

Disconnect the disk-drive and connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in some desktop computer, to see if it is recognized, i.e., if it was the USB-to-disk-drive adapter that has failed.

If it still is not recognized, then it is "dead". You could buy a similar disk-drive, install it into the enclosure, and thus create another external storage device.

Samsung s2 portable, folders are showed as shortcuts !


OK you harddrive is infected with Malware. This Malware creats shortcuts of each folder and Hide the all those your main folder.
You can scan your Hardrive with fully updated Anti Virus apllication .

To see all your original folder you can enable your Shown hidden File option from your Folder option--View--uncheck show hidden files and folder--and uncheck hide protected operating system files.

Here is the step to unhide your all files and folder in one go.
Step 1:

Click on the below link and download the file "AutorunExterminator"

http://en.kioskea.net/download/download-11613-autorun-exterminator

Extract it --> Double-click on "AutorunExterminator" --> Plug your Hard drive now.

This will remove the autorun.inf files from your flash drive and also from drives.

Step 2:

Click on "Start" -->Run --> type cmd and click on OK.

Here I assume your flash drive letter as G:

Enter this command.

attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*

You can copy the above command --> Right-click in the Command Prompt and

paste it.

Note : Don't forget to replace the letter g with your flash drive letter.

Now press "Enter".


this should solve your problem.

This could be an issue with assign the drive a letter:

1. Right Click on "My Computer" (might be called computer)
2. Left click on Manage
3. On the left click on "Disk Managment"
4. Check to see if the 12GB USB drive is showing up there if it is then right click on it and assign it a drive letter.

If the USB does not show up in "Drive Management" then try another USB port or another computer to test to see if the USB drive shows up.

Hope this helps

External 500gb hard drive not readable


Check the partition size in Disk Management (if running Win7 - download a free Partition Manager if not) and see if the system is seeing the partition correctly. Seagate has recovery software available on their website but you may just have to repartition and reformat.
